emotive was founded over 15 years ago with the simple vision of changing lives by helping those who are unwell, access new and amazing treatments that can make them better.

Working in rare disorders and with advanced therapies and orphan products, often comes with unique complexities and challenges. We have a wealth of experience supporting clients across a wide range of rare disorders with novel indications. Currently, 75% of our work is dedicated to rare and ultra-rare disorders at various stages of the product lifecycle and with advanced products such as gene therapies, gene silencing and cell therapies.

We also work closely with our partner, Initiate, a specialist launch strategy and market access consultancy focused exclusively with novel products designed to help those living with rare disorders.

At a community level, we promote engagement in science by students through our sponsorship of the emotive. science lab and annual science prize at a UK girls school. We also work pro-bono on strategy and awareness raising activities for M4RD (Medics for Rare Diseases), a charity committed to promoting greater awareness of rare diseases within the medical profession.
